Toothpaste, whiteners, sugarless gum, mouthwash, manual or electric toothbrushes, floss, and other oral care items retailed at $9.1 billion in 2008 — and $10.9 billion is possible by 2014.

Marketers have proven that this mature industry can still show growth. Americans already brush their teeth, and most gargle or pop breath mints, and yet pure innovation and outside-the-box positionings have sparked one profitable oral care fad after another. However, in 2009, sales of the once wildly popular $5 battery-operated toothbrush, of dissolvable breath strips, and of many dedicated whiteners, have long since faded.

What are the oral care market’s new dollar-drivers? What are the latest flashy strategies to lift brands out of the funk of market maturity? And will consumer oral care thrive or nosedive during these economic hard times? ...Packaged Facts’ new edition of The U.S. Market for Oral Care Products, 7th Edition is a manual for success — featured are detailed past and future sales estimates, IRI brand share data, extensive Simmons demographic profiles, and our usual insightful analysis. Also, the gameplans of Procter & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, and others are examined in depth.

Report Methodology

The U.S. Market for Oral Care Products, 7th Edition is based on information gathered from primary, secondary, and syndicated sources. Primary research involves on-site study of how oral care products are sold through retail stores and consultation with industry executives. Secondary research involves the evaluation and comparison of data from mountains of articles found in financial, marketing, and retail publications, as well as on corresponding types of websites. Company literature, government agencies, and other sources also provide valuable secondary data.

Brand share data on oral care products sold through mass (that is, through supermarkets, chain drugstores, and mass merchandisers, excluding Wal-Mart) have been collected via store checkout scanners by Information Resources, Inc. (IRI).

Analysis of consumers’ purchase and use of oral care products is based on semi-annual surveys by Simmons Market Research Bureau, Inc., one of the leading compilers of demographic data in the United States.

Information about many new product introductions is provided by Product Launch Analytics, a Datamonitor service.
